A Bayshore Elementary School class has done an amazing project. They have collected more than 100,000 soda can tabs to donate to the Ronald McDonald House.
It is the fifth grade class of teacher Jennifer Wilson, and she couldn't be prouder. They have an aquarium full and numerous large and small jars equally full.
"All are overflowing," Wilson said. "Today (Tuesday, May 22) we added another thousand during one of these last few days of the school year."

Student Madison Matthew talked about the project.
"We first started out with a little jar, and filled that up completely. It all started with Make a Difference Day in October."
They moved on to more jars, and then even an aquarium which is now full.
"We save these so they can turn them into scrap metal," said student Devin Albritlon.
"It helps people who have their children sick and have to go to the hospital," said student Joshua Zarco, of how the Ronald McDonald House houses families to be near their children during treatment.
Assistant Principal Ben Ausman had a lot to say about the project. "It's an unbelievable project, what they have done to achieve their goals.
"They have all worked together this entire year to meet those goals."
He said he, and Principal Lynn Herrell, wish all the students a great summer vacation.
